Golden Globes: Rivieres Rule
Celebrities take elegant, low-key approach
to glamour at awards show
Amid a sea of gorgeous black gowns, the real star of the show at January's
Golden Globe Awards was that old standby, the diamond riviere necklace.
The Los Angeles Times raved: "The style has the potential to be
the next diamond tennis bracelet that is, a beautiful, timeless design
that women can wear for day or evening."
Among the stars wearing riviere necklaces were Téa Leoni (shown
here with her husband, actor David Duchovny), Christine Lahti, Julianne
Moore, Lisa Kudrow and Jodie Foster.
Fashion critics theorized the riviere, also know as a straight line necklace,
is just the antidote to over-the-top diamond creations that usually rule
high profile award shows such as the Oscars.

Diamonds were all over the place at the Golden Globes, even in non-riviere
styles. There were tons of stud earrings, such as those pictured here on
Gillian Anderson, who stars with Duchovny on "The X Files." Though
Anderson matched hers with a diamond and platinum "lace" necklace,
others let earrings tell the whole understated story. In this minimalist
category were Helen Hunt, Kirstie Alley, Faye Dunaway, Kristen Johnston,
Angelina Jolie, Simbi Kahli, Jennifer Lopez, and Gloria Reuben, all of whom
wore earrings without necklaces.Copyright © 1998 by Bond Communications.
